Vis-a-vis Xubuntu, it was only yesterday (or the day before) when OSDir added
a Xubuntu screenshot gallery. So, for what it's worth:


It looks rather repellent if compared against nUbuntu (and others), so I
imagine it uses resources wisely, at the least. Maybe a compensation-type

I guess 'accustomisation' and uniformity would be other important factors. I
can't recall if GNOME or XFCE was the first environment I have ever used. I
guess XFCE distributions like Xubuntu serve, to some extent, as a backward
compatibility tool. For anything else, X and TWM or even no X at all would
be fine. I am not sure about IceWM, but all the above are fine for the
server room or the retention of old business processes.

Best wishes,
